two full-service restaurants on the show floor and a coffee bar located inside the Antiquarian Book Fair.
• The Baltimore Summer Antiques Show was acquired in October 2005 by the Palm Beach Show Group—owners and operators of the prestigious Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show, February 15-19, 2013; Naples Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, February 7-11, 2013; and the DALLAS International Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, November 8-12, 2012. Since 2005, the Palm Beach Show Group has elevated the quality and reputation of the Baltimore show and has tripled attendance figures.
• The Baltimore show has a positive impact on the local economy generating millions of dollars in sales taxes and wages both directly from the show and at related area businesses.
• Additionally, over 2,500 verifiable rooms at local hotels, with a "guesstimate" of closer to double that number, are booked for dealers and show attendees.
• The first Baltimore Summer Antiques Show took place in 1980, just months after the grand opening of Harborplace, and was one of the first major events to be held in the new Baltimore Convention Center. The show is the second- longest running event at the Baltimore Convention Center.
